How to Architect Your Application Infrastructure for Effective API Delivery

September 10, 2019 4:05 pm — September 10, 2019 4:40 pm 

APIs are changing the way we build applications and changing the way we expose data, both inside and outside our organizations. But what is the most efficient and effective way to deliver these APIs? That’s the job of the API gateway. In this session, Kevin looks at different deployment patterns for API gateways, including:

  • The centralized, edge gateway
  • The multi‑layer gateway
  • Microgateways, sidecars, and service mesh

Kevin discusses how the implementation and consumption of your API can (and should) influence the selection of the most appropriate API gateway pattern for production deployment.

As the world’s number one API gateway, delivering the vast majority of today’s API traffic, NGINX has a wealth of experience in the API space, and can ensure that your API management platform provides the optimum deployment pattern for your APIs.

Topics include the different API gateway deployment patterns and their relative merits, how differences between API traffic and regular web traffic influences application and API delivery infrastructure, and how software architecture decisions affect API delivery infrastructure.
